Happy Trashy Tuesday! I had the BEST JUNQUE filled week. There is a universal law of empty and full. When I have just about emptied my garage and upcycled almost all my junque, I find enough to fill it up again!
I found this footstool that just needs a cleaning up, paint and a new top. Over all, not bad! Try to not notice the post workout me in the photo…
I found this topless cabinet that could use some wheels, maybe shelves inside, and um yes, a top.
I found this lovely Cherub artwork. I mean it, I thought it was lovely. The decoupage wrinkles just add to the charm!
Dinner in the Dumpster? Not quite, but I did find all of this stuff in a box of household things that happened to be in an industrial area near Paris Flea Market…..Unopened Orzo Pasta, Celery Seed, Bay Leaves, Thyme, a nice looking bottle of formerly Olive Oil, a Pyrex measuring cup, a cookie sheet, Grate, an opened package of envelopes, roll of Scotch Tap and a full bottle of Stain Remover!
It’s like one of those games you play at a baby shower, where the host brings all the items on a tray and you only get to look at it for a few seconds, the winner is the person who writes down the most things that were on the tray. Ready, go! Don’t scroll up!
Who doesn’t need another cabinet door?? I liberated this door from a cabinet. Will make a nice chalkboard, or something like that.
I went back and forth on the decision to take this perfectly good crib home. But through the magic of my smartphone and Pinterest, I can do field research right on the spot! With a quick search of Pinterest, I was able to find dozens of fabulous ideas for crib upcycling. My favorite was a toy bench from an old crib by Gail at My Repurposed Life.
And finally, this table came to its final resting place today. I like the apron on it, and I think I can salvage a little more of it. It looked a sad victim of furniture neglect.
Hope that was trashy enough for you. See you next week.
